Former vice presidential aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby on Monday lost his bid to delay serving his 2 1/2-year prison sentence while he appeals his conviction in the CIA leak case. [...]
The three-judge panel of the appeals court rejected Libby's request in a one-paragraph order, ruling he has not shown that his appeal "raises a substantial question."
The ruling was issued by all three members of the appeals court panel. Judges David Sentelle and Karen LeCraft Henderson were appointed by Republican presidents [Daddy Bush] while Judge David Tatel was appointed by a Democratic president.

lie say about all this. And I wonder if orange is Scootie's color. Can't wait to see!
